TOKYO -- Is Renault-Nissan uber-executive Carlos Ghosn -- dubbed the rock star CEO in Japan -- finally looking to leave the stage?
As he prepares for Nissan's annual shareholders' meeting on June 26, the 58-year-old Ghosn undoubtedly will face questions from the floor about how long he expects to stay at the helm.
A recent report by Bloomberg said he has no plans to preside over the carmaker's next midterm business plan. The current plan, launched by Ghosn last year, ends March 31, 2017.
If he bows out then, he'll be a ripe 63, still relatively young by corporate Japan's standards. Consider Suzuki Motor Corp. patriarch Osamu Suzuki. At 82, he's firmly at the wheel.
